Well, that was fast.
Seems like yesterday that we started planning this thing, and boom — as of this writing we’re just a little over 24 hours away from throwing a benefit show at Pono Ranch to party & support our friends at Safe Place. For anyone who is already planning to join us tomorrow: THANK YOU in advance. Please bring a friend and prepare to have fun! (protip: do some pre-party stretching)
But finally – read on for another announcement!
In addition to The Little Donuts and the Magician On a Motorcycle, we’re happy to announce HALCYON DAZE will also be performing a set of their own to close out the party! Be on the lookout for their incredible “JAMbulance” party ride which will be parked outside, and feel free to check them out on Facebook to get a little slice of what they’ll be bringing to the party (hint: total ridiculousness).
HUGE thank you to the boys in Halcyon Daze for volunteering their time & talents for #BigHeartsAndBackpacks3.
